Memorizing Scripture

At the beginning of every year I always say I want to memorize scripture. I struggle with remembering it long term. I will work to memorize a scripture in a week but a few weeks later it seems to be gone. I always just hope it is inside somewhere and God will bring it to the surface when I need it.

I'm participating in an online Bible Study right now called From Chaos to Calm. I'm really enjoying it. God has already started working on my heart through this study and we're only on Day 3.

Anyways, each day the devotion includes a scripture to memorize for that day. I can't memorize a scripture in one day. Maybe you can, but I can't. I always end up feeling overwhelmed and not memorizing any of them.

I'm wondering if any of you have done a study that has a memory verse every day. What do you do? Are you like me and can't memorize one a day? Do you just work on one until you have it and then move to the next?

I've really felt the desire to put these scriptures to memory. I don't want to end up with that overwhelming feeling again. I need your advice on how to make the most out these memory verses.

  1. I think I'm going to do note cards because I can't memorize in one day either. I'm writing them down in my journal as of right now and going over them. I think one a day is a lot! LOL I was thinking it would be one a week.
